Primary aim of this study was to investigate peak joint torque angle (i.e. the angle of peak torque) changes recorded during an isokinetic test before and after a fatiguing soccer match simulation. Secondarily we want to investigate functional Hecc:Qconc and conventional Hconc:Qconc ratio changes due to fatigue. Before and after a standardised soccer match(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of unilateral eccentric training using constant velocity or constant external load on untrained limb. Forty-nine participants were randomized in isokinetic (IK), dynamic constant external resistance (DCER) unilateral eccentric training or control groups. Knee-extension 1RM and isometric, eccentric and(More)
This study compared the exercise induced muscle damage and repeated bout effect after isoload vs isokinetic eccentric supra-maximal single session. Thirty sport science male students were randomly divided in isokinetic (IK) and isoload (IL) eccentric training. Creatin kinase (CK) serum activity, muscle soreness and strength decrement measured both in(More)
BACKGROUND This clinical trial was done to describe a mini approach for distal biceps repair using two or three suture anchors. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty patients have undergone surgical repair over the last 10 years. All patients were males with mean age 46.8 (range 35-72), and dominant arm was involved in 70 %. Eighteen patients were evaluated with(More)
BACKGROUND Muscle damage and repeated bout effect have been studied after pure eccentric-only exercise. The aim of this study was to evaluate muscle damage and repeated bout effect induced by enhanced eccentric squat exercise using flywheel device. METHODS Thirteen healthy males volunteered for this study. Creatine kinase blood activity (CK), quadriceps(More)
Over the past decade, linear and nonlinear surface electromyography (EMG) variables highlighting different components of fatigue have been developed. In this study, we tested fractal dimension (FD) and conduction velocity (CV) rate of changes as descriptors, respectively, of motor unit synchronization and peripheral manifestations of fatigue. Sixteen(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effects of different resistance training protocols on muscle strength, endurance, and hypertrophy after training and detraining. Thirty-four resistance-trained males were randomized in concentric-only (CONC), eccentric-only (ECC), traditional concentric-eccentric (TRAD) bench press resistance training or(More)
The aim of the study was to non-invasively determine if vastus lateralis (VL) and vastus medialis obliquus (VM) muscles are equally affected by age-related fiber atrophy. Multichannel surface electromyography was used since it allows to estimate muscle fiber conduction velocity (CV), which has been demonstrated to be related to the size of recruited muscle(More)
Futsal (the official name of "five side indoor football") has become very popular in recent years, and it counts more than 12 million players in over 100 countries. Futsal is played on a field of 40 x 20 m between 2 teams of 5 players, (four outfield players and the goalkeeper). Despite its rise of popularity, the number of scientific studies related to(More)
Exercise elicits skeletal-muscle adaptations which are important for improved health outcomes. We compared the effects of a futsal game (FUT) and moderate-intensity continuous exercise (MOD), on the skeletal-muscle protein signalling responses in young, healthy individuals. 16 men undertook an incremental exercise test and a resting muscle biopsy performed(More)
